I don't find my 535d louder than the gas engine in most circumstances. Remember also that it turns at considerably lower RPMs at any given cruising speed...70 mph on the diesel barely cracks 1500...

I went from a 535i xdrive to a 535d xdrive about a year ago. I have to say I would have a hard time going back to gasoline. There is no diesel smell, you can hardly hear any diesel-like noises from...

The delivery agent for my car told me not to exceed 100 mph for the first 400 miles, after that have fun but be prudent. I wonder if the difference in my case was that my car's a diesel?

I have only seen the Eco Pro reset when refueling. That said, if you drive hard, it's possible to wipe out the gains achieved by using Eco-Pro. For example, I have had the meter read as high as 1.4...
